    Frederick Coffay Yohn (1875-1933) Original Story Illustration (1915-1920). F. C. Yohn is best known for his illustrations of historical subjects in books and magazines; especially memorable are his images depicting famous Revolutionary battles. He contributed work to some of the major national periodicals, including Harper's, Scribner's, and Century, and was one of the founders of The Society of Illustrators. This story illustration carried the whimsical title, Airmail Again, and the caption: "He boldly clung to his dizzy perch, not daring to look down, as he completed his job." Rendered in gouache and mixed media on board, it is framed (22 x 26.5) with a sight size of approximately 17 x 21, and is signed lower left.
